FM Radio Detection of Meteors


My name is Marianne Gualtieri. In 1998, when I was a 10th-grade student at Villa Walsh Academy in Morristown, New Jersey, I set up an observatory for the radio detection of meteors using the forward scatter of the signal from an FM radio station. Since that time, my father and I have improved our equipment and observed many major meteor showers. Please read our disclaimer and follow the links below to learn how to set-up your own radio meteor observatory.
